Britain’s King Charles greets well-wishers outside Buckingham Palace in London after the death of Queen Elizabeth II

Britain’s King Charles shook hands with dozens of members of the public outside Buckingham Palace on Friday as emotional well-wishers took pictures and welcomed the new monarch following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth on Thursday.

Harles and his wife Camilla, Queen Consort, disembarked from the royal carriage just outside the gates of Buckingham Palace in an unexpected gesture as they returned to London from Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where Britain’s Queen died.

The black-clad couple were greeted with great cheers and applause by a crowd of hundreds gathered outside the palace, TV footage showed.

The new king then shook hands with dozens of well-wishers and spent more than ten minutes contemplating the floral tributes to his mother. Several members of the public sang “God save the King” and one shouted “Love you Charles!”

One woman kissed Charles’ hand while another leaned over the security barrier to hug him and kiss his cheek. Several told him they were sorry for his loss and he thanked them.

People gathered outside the palace turned their cellphone cameras on Charles as he passed, flanked by security guards.

Charles and Camilla then passed through the gates of the palace.
